Description: The Lime Inn restaurant is located in downtown Cruz Bay and has been a favorite between locals and visitors alike since 1984. Still owned and operated by owners Rich and Chris Meyer, your St. John experience is not complete without a visit to our open-air restaurant and a taste of our extensive menu. We are known for our wonderful staff and delicious and consistent meals. Join us for fresh grilled Caribbean Lobster or our whole jerk seasoned and pan seared snapper! You can also eat light with our selection of salads or our famous clam chowder. But don't forget, you can't finish up lunch or dinner without famous Key Lime pie. We are open for Lunch Monday thru Friday from 11:30 to 3, happy hour from Monday thru Saturday at our courtyard bar from 3-6 (1/2 priced drinks), and dinner Monday thru Friday from 5:30 to 10.

Some had oysters on the half as apps and others had oysters rockerfeller. One of the sides that day was potatoes au gratin which I initially declined. The... More

We went for all-you-can-eat shrimp on Wednesday night and really enjoyed it. The owner (I believe he was the owner, the gentleman acting as host) was really pleasant and made it a great experience. The service was quick and the food was delicious (though shrimp was peel-n-eat, so not deveined). There is a bar in the front - go in... More

Another couple recommended this restaurant. You pick your lobster based on weight. The best lobster I've had. Staff and owner is very friendly.

Over the last decade this is a "go to" restaurant. Always a very good meal, excellent bar, great staff, and Rich is always a great host.

The food was great- my husband got a lobster, the staff helped open it as it is very time consuming. Staff was friendly and food was well priced, and delicious! Highly recommend

I think this is a pretty good place to eat. We have been here 3 days and for an evening meal out, it's been our top choice so far. We had the shrimp and scallop scampi with pasta and my cousin had the tuna with wasabe sauce, they were all good and make you want to come back again. The... More

My wife and I ate at the Lime Inn our last night in Saint John. I had the Shrimp and Scallop scampi while she had a Blue Cheese stuffed Filet. The appetizer of French onion soup was delicious as were out entrees. We had a great and attentive waiter, plus the host visited with us for 20 minutes after our... More
